A video of a certain Rosalina Euginio, asking for assistance to return home to the Philippines, is making the rounds on social media.
Euginio, a Filipina domestic helper based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, uploaded a video of herself in tears, pleading for help to come home to the Philippines after allegedly being nearly raped by her employer’s brother.
“Ako po si Rosalina, humihingi po ako ng tulong, gusto ko na pong makauwi ng Pilipinas. Ang kapatid po ng amo ko minamaltrato ako, hindi po ako nogsusumbong sa kanila noong una, pero nag sumbong na ako noong huling ginawa niya sa akin, muntik na talaga ako niyang ginahasa. Gusto ko na pong makauwi ng Pilipinas, hindi ko na kaya. Ilang beses na akong pinagtangkahan,” Rosalina pleaded in the video. (I am Rosalina, I am asking your help to return to the Philippines. My employer’s brother has been maltreating me. At first, I didn’t say anything to my employer, but after the latest incident, where I was almost raped, I had no choice but to speak up. I can’t take it anymore, I need to go home. I’ve been threatened several times.)
An update on the Facebook page of web journalist Even Demata, indicates the Philippine Embassy in Saudi Arabia has already contacted Rosalina to lend assistance.
